Inspired by Sri Atmananda (Krishna Menon), the Direct Path is a "pathless path." It simply articulates the being of you and the world as loving, open, clear awareness.

I like to think of myself as this an that. Turning towards the nature of what I refer to as "I" is an awakening. This book is a great guide for a fun exploration.

Just left one religion do not need another.
